    I like the P238 and they seem to be reliable, but I don't have much love for the 380. If the options are limited to those two firearms, the P238 offers a better cartridge choice. The growth of the concealed carry industry has produced much improved...

    Climate changes. Anthropogenic greenhouse gasses seem to have some role in it. But, the exploitation of climate change by Ctrl-Left anti-capitalists as a vehicle for increasing government control over the lives of individuals and asserting some...

    RPRNY replied to a thread Wipe or Blow in Black Powder Cartridge
    First, good on you for getting in there and shooting a BPCR match! As is usual in such things, there are zealous advocates for either approach, but 25ring boils it down to basic rather well. I wipe, but not to a shiny barrel. A little bit of...

    I have one in 45 LC. I believe I paid about $350 for it and an additional $45 for a metal magazine follower, delete for the vile looking safety, and springs. It doesn't have the aesthetic appeal or finish of my pre-Remington Marlin 94 Cowboy Ltd,...

    Pyrodex is not as easy as BP to ignite. If there is any constriction in the channel between cap and chamber can make it impossible. Clean out the channel. You may want to get a new and/or oversized nipple. Track of the Wolf and the Possibles Shop...

    1 3/8oz shot and 89 grs Pyrodex is quite an imbalanced load in 10 ga. A balanced black powder (and Pyrodex sub) load is more or less equal volumes powder and shot. 1 3/8 to 1 1/2 oz seems to be a sound maximum load for a vintage double but 89...

    The original load in the Swede was a very long 156gr RN bullet. Thus, the tight twist of 1:8. Certainly, shooting cast, a longer bullet that will not sit too far of the lands would be best suited to the rifle. If shooting jacketed, 140 grs spritzers...

    So the obvious question to ask our resident actuaries is whether they own insurance. I bet they do. The Mossberg. Your round ball, or Brenekke slugs, for daytime and 00 Buck for camp at night. A far more concerning risk lies with predators of...

    RPRNY replied to a thread 38 special HP 158 gr in Cast Boolits
    With 38spl, you can chamfer the case mouth, so that in addition to a reasonable bell for seating, the crimp will be less likely to bite into a soft bullet. As to TB, essentially, any load that is not compressed by the bullet, and not less than...

    Are you mad? That short neck? Absolutely not. 30-30, 30-40, 35 Krag, 45-70. All far better cast boolit cartridges than that short, fat, balding, objectionable cartridge. In fact, 35 Rem is a better cast boolit cartridge than the 358 Abomination.

    I donít have one, but I think 35 Whelen is about the perfect elk cartridge. I do have a 35 Krag single shot and that can be loaded to lower 35 Whelen territory.

    RPRNY replied to a thread Opioid/heroin crisis? in Our Town
    It seems perfectly logical to me that if cannabids are the first port of call for treatment, rather than opioids, that will, over time, profoundly reduce opioid addiction, and is certainly a desirable outcome. As far as I know, while habituation can...

    Going to have to ask for some substantiation for this claim because the chemistry simply isnít there. The addictive properties of opioids simply do not allow for someone addicted to switch to or substitute canbabids. The chemical properties of the...

    Repeating it will not make it true. The socio-economic conditions that Obamaís War on Working Americans brought an opioid abuse problem to crisis levels in the Ohio River Valkey, Appalachia, and the Upper Midwest.

    Your understanding is incorrect. Abuse of prescription opioids has existed since they became available. The crisis ensues from the socio-economic conditions created by the Obama Regime.

    Excellent advice above. The 7mm 08 is the cartridge that the 308 should have been in any event. An excellent choice. Big fan of the Swede, but for elk at 400 yards, prefer the heavier bullets of the 27 - 28 caliber rounds. And if shaving 5 oz off...
